The Columbus has the amenities of a large ship while combining the intimate atmosphere of smaller ship. The Waterfront Restaurant offers up full English breakfasts, leisurely lunches and five course dinners. You can also head over to the fusion or grill specialty restaurants for a taste of something different. The Chef’s Table restaurant is the ultimate gastronomic experience onboard. Those who prefer something more casual can visit the Plantation Bistro buffet or the Alfresco Grill. There’s no shortage of lounges and bars, either. The Captain’s Club, the casino, Connexions, Raffles and Taverner’s Pub are all popular choices on the Columbus. And with specialty coffee and tea shops, there’s always a place to relax. The nightlife is upbeat as well. Enjoy the night at the impressive three decked central atrium and the Dome Observatory Nightclub. The talented show team and guest acts are certain to entertain in the two-deck Palladium Show Lounge. The Columbus also offers the Observation Lounge for fine ocean views, the Trumps and Aces card room with its own library, a fully equipped gym, the Jade Wellness Center, shops in the atrium and even a Crafter’s Studio to let your creativity go wild.

Columbus is dedicated to adults and therefore does not carry children or teenagers under the age of 16.
